DC Kohima clarifies on hoisting of National Flag

BY | Saturday, 13 August, 2022

Deputy Commissioner Kohima, Shanavas C, IAS in a notice stated that there has been some misinformation spreading in certain sections of the population in and around Kohima district regarding distribution of National Flag of India claiming that directions have been given for mandatory hoisting of the Tricolour in individual households, shops, etc in view of the Government of India’s ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign.

In this connection, the DC has clarified and reiterated the statement made during the meetings held with regard to ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign dated 05/08/2022 and 08/08/2022 with various Government Agencies and other stakeholders that the purchase and hoisting of the National Flag of India is purely voluntary and not mandatory. However, an appeal has been made to all citizens to participate in the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign for its successful implementation.

The DC has therefore informed to all concerned that any further clarification in this regard may be sought from the Office of the Deputy Commissioner Kohima.
